BARONIO, Cesare
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Cesare Baronio of Sora was a 16th-century Italian cardinal and historian of the Catholic Church. Baronio had extensive conversations with Galileo on the heavens and was quoted as saying that "the Bible teaches us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go" in direct opposition to the famed astronomer. While he is best-remembered for his work 'Ecclesiastical Annales', he was responsible for many manuscripts including an updated edition of the 'Roman Martyrology.' This work is known as the official catalogue of Catholic martyrs compiled into a chronological list by liturgical month. Baronio's edition, first published in 1586, is significant for removing certain entries that he deemed implausible for historical reasons. This 1598 impressive folio edition was published in the Vatican by Bernardo Basa. [Attributes: First Edition]

SCALIGERO, Julius Caesar
1598 Aristotle On PLANTS Scaliger Botany Marburg Medieval Manuscript Binding “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Aristotle Julius Caesar Scaliger was an Italian physician who was known for his defense of Aristotelian humanism. Late in his life, he finally decided to publish many of his written treatises, including his study on Aristotle’s ‘De Plantis’. Much in part to this work, 18th-century philosophers such as Leibniz recognized Scaliger as one of the best promoters of Aristotelian philosophy and metaphysics. Aristotle’s ‘On Plants’ describes the nature and origin of plants; and upon modern study, was actually written by Nicolaus of Damascus, rather than Aristotle. This rare 1598 edition was published in Marburg, Germany by Paul Egenol.

CAVALIERI, Bonaventura Francesco.
DSB III, pp. 149-153; Honeyman 646; Riccardi I, 328; First edition of the celebrated mathematical textbook on trigonometry by Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647), a student of Galileo and professor in mathematics at Bologna. He discovered the method of indivisibles, the first step in infinitesimal analysing, which revolutionized science after Newton and Leibnitz almost simultaneously discovered infinitesimal calculus. Cavalieri was also the first to introduce logarithms in Italy, and noteworthy developments in trigonometry and astronomy as well. The present work on trigonometry includes excellent logarithmic-trigonometric tables, which according to Riccardi greatly assisted the work of the famous astronomer Domenico Cassini. With a manuscript note on the title-page, scratched through. Some minor foxing, and some small wormholes in the last flyleaf and folding plate, hardly affecting the illustration. Binding slightly stained. [Attributes: First Edition]

Titel aus dem Lateinischen übersetzt: "1594 überquerte Sinan Bassa, der unter dem türkischen Herrscher Amurat diente, die Donau und zerstörte das Lager der Christen auf der Insel und begann eine derart grausame Belagerung, dass er die Stadt am 29. September in Besitz nehme konnte".

AMERIKA (America):
1598. Kupferstich v. Hernando de Solis n. Abraham Ortelius aus Relaciones Vniversales del Mundo ., 1598 (1603), 34,5 x 47,5 Burden, The Mapping of North America, 129. - "Accompanying this Spanish translation of Giovanni Botero's popular Relaciones Vniversales del Mundo . were five newly engraved maps of the world and four continents. The book was a treatise on the political and geographical state of the world. - The map of America is a curious mix of the two similar maps by Abraham Ortelius of 1570 and 1587. The engraver, Hernando de Solis, chose to use the earlier Ortelius version of 1570 with the peculiar bulge to the south-western coastline of South America, and not the later more accurate map in which this was removed. - He did, however, incorporate the later map's new depiction of the Solomon Islands to the east of "Noeva Ginea". - He did not utilise any of the new nomenclature in North America on either the west or east coasts, most noticeably the addition of references to Virgina. - The only detail used from the 1587 map in North America is the broad river flowing southwards into the St. Lawrence River from a Lago Dagolesme. - In the lower corners are portraits of Vespucci and Columbus. - This well-engraved map is rarely in the book, which its itself scarce. - The inscription on the map shows that it was made in the year 1598 although the two-part book appeared in 1603. - The second of these parts is, however, dated 1599 and it is possible that an edition of this part alone occurred in that year. - Another explanation could be that the fact that it was published by t … [Click Below for Full Description]

BODIN, Jean
1598 Jean Bodin Demon Mania Sorcery Witchcraft TORTURE of Witches Occult Devil The BEST book on witchcraft and demonology! ‘Demon-Mania of the Sorcerers’ was the most important work by 16th-century French philosopher Jean Bodin. This major work on sorcery and witchcraft discussed the horrors of making deals with the devil, or ‘pact witchcraft’. Bodin believed that evil spirits could influence magicians and sorcerers and that exorcisms were a critical, if not vital, tactic for dealing with demons. This work also gives reports of monastics having sexual relations with the Devil, sightings, and the study of werewolves, torture for being convicted of witchcraft, and the role of witches in summoning demons. There is also section entitled, “Lycanthropy, and if spirits can change men into beasts.” This work is perhaps the most influential 16th-century book on how to punish witches. He sought to destroy the existing laws and relaxed attitude toward witches, which he viewed as inadequate for dealing with witchcraft. Bodin, controversially, said that instead of one witch or wizard being burned alive, gather hundreds together at once and burn them in one big pile!

RUINI, Carlo.
Bologna: Heirs of Giovanni Rossi, 1598. First edition. First edition, the highly scarce first issue, of "one of the great rarities of early zootomical literature" (Cole, p. 90), with illustrations considered comparable to those in Vesalius' Fabrica. "The unusual rarity of the first edition might be partially explained by the fact that a portion of the sheets of the first edition were reissued the following year by Gaspare Bindoni in Venice. Copies of this second issue, which is also rare, contain a cancel title and a different dedication leaf, changing the dedication to Ceìsar, Duke of Vendôme, natural son of Henri IV" (Norman). "His book is the first devoted to the anatomy of an animal, and is one of the finest achievements of the heroic age of Anatomy" (Singer, The Evolution of Anatomy, p. 153, with three plates reproduced). "At the hands of Ruini the subject of equine anatomy jumped at a single bound from the blackest ignorance to relative perfection, the degree of which it is difficult to exaggerate" (Smith, The Early History of Veterinary Literature and its British Development, Vol. 1, p. 209). "As the author of the first book devoted exclusively to the structure of an animal other than man, Ruini ranks among the founders of both comparative anatomy and veterinary medicine. This is all the more remarkable as he was not a physician, or even a veterinarian, but a Bolognese aristocrat, senator, and high-ranking lawyer. Following the example of Vesalius, Ruini stressed the importance of "artful instruction" about all parts of the horse's body, the diseases that afflict the … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARONIO, Cesare
Romae: ex typographia Vaticana [Romae excudebat Bernardus Basa], 1598. 1598 Vatican Martyrology Cardinal Baronio Catholic Church MARTYRS RITES Folio Cesare Baronio of Sora was a 16th-century Italian cardinal and historian of the Catholic Church. Baronio had extensive conversations with Galileo on the heavens and was quoted as saying that “the Bible teaches us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go” in direct opposition to the famed astronomer. While he is best-remembered for his work ‘Ecclesiastical Annales’, he was responsible for many manuscripts including an updated edition of the ‘Roman Martyrology.’ This work is known as the official catalogue of Catholic martyrs compiled into a chronological list by liturgical month. Baronio’s edition, first published in 1586, is significant for removing certain entries that he deemed implausible for historical reasons. This 1598 impressive folio edition was published in the Vatican by Bernardo Basa.

1598 MONSTERS Zombies Demon Possession Occult Miracles Boaistuau Prodigieuses Pierre Boaistuau was a 16th-century French humanist who was well-known for his works of the extravagant, the unknown, and bizarre! Perhaps his most adventurous work was ‘Histoires Prodigieuses’ – a collection of stories of monsters, demons, sea-serpents, half-animal half-man creatures, geological wonders, and natural phenomena. Boaistuau and other contributing authors attempted to compile a list of all the known, and subsequently unknown, monsters from all around the world. This particular tome from the complete work contains 5 fascinating woodcut engravings supplementing the bizarre stories of evil spirits inhabiting bodies, demons eating and consuming human’s spirit, raising the dead, zombies, and other spiritual oddities.

Gallucci, Giovanni Paolo.
1598. 4to (22 × 16.5 cm). With engraved title-page, folding woodcut plate, 3 woodcut volvelles with moving parts, and numerous woodcut illustrations in text. Including a world map in two hemispheres (incl. America and a scattering of islands at the location of Australia) on two facing pages, they reappear with volvelle attachments on both sides of leaf 149 and leaf 153. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment. First edition of a well-illustrated encyclopaedia of astronomical and surveying instruments available since classical history, by the Italian astronomer Giovanni Paolo Gallucci (1538-ca. 1621), a well-known private teacher to the Venetian nobility and founding member of the Second Venetian Academy. It gives a comprehensive summary of the knowledge of astronomy, cosmography and mathematics at the time of Galileo. "It describes instruments designed by others (Finé, Apian, Gemma Frisius, etc.) and gives credit to the original inventors. The one exception to this is the Visorio, which Gallucci claims as his own, but an identical instrument by Waldseemüller can be found illustrated in the 1512 edition of Margarita Philosophica by Gregor Reisch. Other instruments, such as the Hemispherical Uranico (a complicated device used for computations dealing with the moon, sun and stars), appear to be of Gallucci's invention. Besides the usual portable instruments, he also includes a simple quadrant and a two-ringed armillary built into the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence" (Erwin Tomash). For some of the instruments this is the only description available. The present second i … [Click Below for Full Description]
